Try your hand at some pollinator planting, take some Sunflower seeds away for fun at home and get top gardening tips from Father Nature.

Join in a nature inspired mindful art and craft workshop, run with founder and director Julie Norburn, of Art4Space. who will inspire and explore creativity through making.

Sunday 29th May -  2-4pm 

Back by popular demand and extending their series of May sessions across the area, Battersea-based E33 Dance Company showcase their latest choreography entitled: ‘Used to Be…’ by up-and-coming choreographer Rick Fernandes.

Local Nine Elms artist, Daria Hass will be running arts and mindfulness workshops alongside the performances to complement the choreography and floral installation, using the symbolism of butterfly metamorphosis to gently encourage the audience to consider how change can be challenging, but also life-giving and renewing.

The performances and workshops are suitable for all age groups.

E33 Dance Company were selected by the Nine Elms community as part of this year’s ‘Movement and Metamorphosis – Make Art in Nine Elms’ event programme
